The puzzles here are my own designs unless noted. The puzzles will arrive unassembled, you will have to figure out how to assemble them. Painting these puzzles is not recommended because it will destroy the fit, for coloring I use fabric dyes.
All puzzles here were designed using open source software!

Assemble ten identical pieces (plus a small icosahedron) into a 5 cm diameter ball. The geometry here is very confusing, but it is based on a dissection of an icosahedron. More than 10 prototypes were made of this puzzle, because the angles have to be just right, and proper exploding depends on the friction between the pieces. The pieces need to be quite smooth for proper operation, so it is now available only in polished, white strong and flexible. The photos show how I have dyed it in 5 colors.
The small icosahedron can be replaced by a standard size D20 (~19mm face to face, the photos show a Game Science D20). This puzzle fits rather tightly out of the box, but loosens up with time. Sanding is no longer necessary.
